2) you are doing this with the stock cooler?? I hate to say it but you shouldnt... the stock cooler comes with paste pre-applied (as you can see here)

those 3 areas are paste

3) what kind of paste is that stuff? it seems very "wet"

I don't think he is using a stock cooler....

i was able to use my pc for a couple of days without problems with the x-shaped

so what now? what do you suggest now

First of all. That CPU can safely operate at 80C without damaging the chip. At or above 100C is when you are at risk of damage.

67 on a full load, gaming, is reasonable.

What temps were you seeing before when using the X patern?

I would also like to point out that your heat sink is has a circle contact. If it had been completely flat and covered the entire CPU, you would have had MUCH more s[censored]over.. you are very lucky it is a circle... It left room for the paste to escape and not get all over your MB.

If you are still concerned about your temps, then make sure you have all 4 posts on your heat sink securely locked in.

What temps is he using? C or F?

Rookie... Temps are in C 99% of the time and there is NO WAY he was hitting 40F with his setup at boot... :cool:

it's working fine now.

about the temp, the light i'm using when replacing is near the motherboard so thats maybe the reason why it's hot on the first run.

but now its all back to normal, down to 62-64deg CELSIUS on dota 2 (dota 2 only uses 50% of the 4 cores)

with x-shaped, also about 62-64 deg

maybe placing too much thermal paste wont improve the temperature

Yeah you don't really want to use more than a pea sized amount. I like Arctic Silver. Too much will do the opposite and cause overheating, very true. I think if you do a search on the web you can find some how to videos and actually see it done, this will help. Good Luck. 🙂

if you hit 100 more than likely your PC will shut down. Its typical to try to keep the CPU below 80 at full load... as stated, 67 is good for load.

but still comes back to the fact that NO paste was needed for a stock cooler...

I honestly don't think those were Aga's pictures, I think I'd was a test on a forum somewhere, and he copied is as it was his processor and he was asking how to apply thermal paste, my new take on things. 😛

A pea sized amount is good or a small marble, be careful not to get it everywhere though, specifically your hands! its very toxic.
